    Part 1 - Pick any number for the first blank. This is the first term of the arithmetic sequence, \(a_1\). - Choose whether the time spent will increase or decrease as the week continues for the second blank - For the third blank, choose by how many minutes the practice will increase or decrease. -The second and third blanks combine to give the common difference, \(d\). (positive for increase, negative for decrease)
